As long as it is 'opt-in', some sort of compensation is offered for the free ride AND the thing is secure enough (as in you can't access the private network via the public one) I don't see a problem either.
Why, isn't it the same with Dotcom? It's about making them examples. It failed quite hard with TPB. I'm hoping it fails double as hard with Dotcom. After the high profile, defiant examples are dealt with the rest is ''easy'. This guy doesn't yield flashy headlines. He even cooperated with the police instead of mocking the whole thing!
You fool, your skepticism is what allows the Yankees to deploy weapons everywhere unhindered! They have been engaged in high mobility area weapons that can take any form factor and shoot fluids that will paint everything to oblivion. If you doubt me see this link. We are doomed!
Hmm, it would be insanely awesome if you could simply turn them on and the camera would automatically connect to the device and empty itself or do something programmable automatically. Still it is an awesome gadget to venture outside.
"You have to draw the line between your right as a citizen to privacy and a community's right to live in a crime-free environment. You can't have them both," Mills said.
How about the toddler's right not to be burned by some paramilitary force with a badge? How about the rights of the family to be safe from misuse of police force? How about we talk about a balance where there is a chance of crime but the citizens aren't murdered with no mercy by the police just because they have a gun and a badge?
There's no line to be drawn. There is a need to have a police force that is able to take care of their citizens. If your focus is the well being of the people you serve the rest comes naturally.
Hmm, isn't this the standard behavior of most of the elected presidents nowadays? Except maybe Obama (and I'm not convinced of it myself) and Obama has been a disaster for free speech and other Constitutional rights along with international relations and human rights.
If Xiaomi is growing like crazy it means they are doing at least a decent job in building products customers want. The most important and yet ignored question is: would Xiaomi go beyond its infancy if it was opened in the US in 2010? The answer is most obviously no. So where is the progress the patent system is promoting?
Supposing everybody is in the initiative at some point wouldn't it be the exact same as wither having a patent pool anybody can dip in or no patents at all? If the companies are seeking such solutions then the patent system is useless at best and harmful at worst. I'd go with the worst nowadays.
